Great Show. The Scarlet>Touch and does anybody remember the Thunder and the Lightning during the Wheel I distinctly remember being under the covered walkway at the rear left ( stage right )of the Venue duing the storm. Awesome heat lightning too.

Looks Like Rain

Yes I remember there was some awesome heat lightning that seemed to start up during looks like rain, but then it really was crackling during The Wheel. This was an awesome show!!

I don't agree with the

I don't agree with the above assessment of the show, I thought that it was one of the weakest shows I had ever been to. By that time the Throwing Stones-NFA leaving the stage one at a time had, in my mind, gotten stale. I thought that they rushed through it because of the storm that was brewing. And what a storm it was! I don't believe that I have ever seen rain that dense on the road to Cedar Rapids. We had to pull off the road until we could see anything. Some one named Paul in the Rainbow Bus was killed during that storm. The band dedicated the show at Cedar Rapids to him. An aside about the KC show, this young man recognized me as one of the referees for his football team. He was decked out in tie die from head to foot. I had to laugh when I found out that it was his 2nd show..

hey coach, don't laugh.

Hey coach, everybody who ended up seeing 130 show had to experience their 2nd at some point. The important thing is, he saw one........ and was smart enough to come back for more!

P.S. hey dougles, I'm looking at comments from shows I was at..... and on every one of my shows so far, there you are.

Small World

Deadhead Dave--I believe that you misunderstood the basis of my humor--I had run into someone from my hometown, hundreds of miles from home that that was tie-died from head to foot, one would think from that perspective that this was a vereran hard-core head. It was a matter of surprise to find out that his first show was only 3 nights earlier in Indianapolis. That is getting on the bus with two feet and not looking back. If he should read this I would be curious to know the end of the story.

Fireworks

Hey Now! One thing I always remember about this show, aws that after the show we were hanging out in front of the theater trying to "orient ourselves" before leaving and there were some heads in a tent over by this group of trees that were actually lighting firecrackers in their tent. You would hear bang bang bang bang and see flashes going off in the tent and then several people would just break up laughing! A few seconds would go by and they'd do it again. About this time a couple of K.C. cops walked by. The jusy looked at the tent for a minute, shook their heads and kept on walking. The Starlight was always one of my favorite venues that I ever saw the Dead in. It alway had a kind of magic of its own.

Touch of Grey

First time I heard it, and it was very powerful. The crowd reacted very strongly, cheering wildly with "We Will Survive." A great moment.
